Men in Sheds and Community Growing @ The Hub 28th Sept

A damp start to the morning, autumn is setting in, the plants on the Hub site are beginning to look a little worse for ware, the temperature has dropped, and so we continue our Men in Sheds sessions into another season.

Today the lads are filled with enthusiasm as they have recently found out that they can have another shipping container on the site, giving them a much needed place to have brews and eat their lunch, and seek shelter from all sorts of coming winter weather. The lads have made great use of the the current container where both materials are stored and brews made.

so for today’s session they were busy clearing the area where the new container will sit. my work today on the gardening side of the project consisted of barrying soil to and fro from the UCAN centre and filling raised beds with a mixture of donated turf turned upside down and stacked at the bottom of the beds, followed by a layer of shredded documents, then compost on top,.

today I managed to add a further four raised beds filled to the brim ready to receive their overwintering as part of next weeks session
